Invitation: Conference on Energy Imbalance Market Concepts in the Western Interconnection
Balancing authorities and other power organizations in the Western Interconnection are exploring their options for improving their ability to reduce the need for reserves, and better integrate intermittent renewable energy resources. Many Western utilities and power organizations, with their longstanding tradition of independence and collaboration, are straining to keep pace with heightened demands on transmission services, generation ramping capacity, public policy requirements and threats to system reliability.
Supported by Van Ness Feldman, this summit and related workshops will examine current initiatives to address these challenges, what the barriers are, and how organizations with balancing responsibilities are tackling them. Van Ness Feldman’s Malcolm McLellan will be leading a discussion on incremental energy balance market proposal and implementation options.
